The countdown has begun. The Bulls and the boys are on their way back to New York City. Every January the Professional Bull Riders descend on the big apple for 3 great nights of competition. Tickets start at just $25. The excitement is "edge of your seat" quality. The bulls are big and tough. The cowboys are rough and ready. And by this Friday night Madison Square Garden will be transformed into an arena ready for some of the best 8 second action the PBR has to offer.

The Monster Energy Buck Off at the Garden kicks off the 2016 season for the PBR. Not only are there three great nights of bull riding, but there are before and after parties to meet the riders and grab up autographs. Try to make it to NYC to see this action in person, but if you can't make it down make sure you catch it on TV.

Cool exciting things happen at Madison Square Garden but this has to be one of the best events all year.

The video below is not for the squeamish.
